The Invisible Man sneaks past rivals in UK Chart

The Invisible Man 1

Universal’s reimagining of The Invisible Man story came out of nowhere to top the UK Box Office on debut.

The film, which stars Elisabeth Moss, opened with £2.1m, to knock former incumbent Sonic The Hedgehog into second place.

Oscar-winner Parasite continued to reap its rewards in third, while Mark Ruffalo’s latest, Dark Waters, sees him go green and angry again - though this time as a corporate lawyer taking on a chemical corporation accused of polluting the local area. The drama opened in fourth with £860k.

Elsewhere RDJ’s animal friendly Dolittle dipped to fifth, while Jane Austen’s Emma, starring Anya Taylor-Joy tumbled one place to sixth.

World War One drama 1917, starring George MacKay dropped to seventh, while Harrison Ford and his pooch pal in The Call Of The Wild lay down in eighth.

Harley Quinn’s Birds Of Prey crashed to ninth, with Will Smith’s Bad Boys For Life completing the top ten.

Acclaimed French drama Portrait Of A Lady On Fire debuted in 11thwith £229k, while Will Ferrell and Julia Louis-Dreyfus’s black comedy Downhill opened in a disappointing 13thwith £188k.
